An extreme or irrational fear of riding on public buses.
"Bro, last time I hopped on a bus, I almost shat myself. They aren't even dangerous. I suffer from transphobia and I don't know why."

An irrational negative response to transgender and intersex people, as well as other forms of gender-bending and gender non-conformity. Extreme cases may involve the belief that people with the above conditions are less than human. Often carries that assumption that gender is a natural, rather than learned, condition, and that biological sex is a discrete, immutable trait rather than a collection of characteristics. Related to homophobia.
A trans lady was attacked by a dude with an intense case of transphobia, who claimed that she was really a man and should have expected to be attacked since 'he' was wearing a dress. The newspaper that reported the attack was also transphobic, as they described the lady using her birth name and male pronouns, even though her name and sex have both been legally changed.
The transphobia permeating the media is a contributing factor to the 47% suicide rate among transgender youth.

Discrimination against transgender people. This includes using derogatory slurs against transgender people, invalidating nonbinary people, intentionally misgendering someone (not using their preferred pronouns) or intentionally using their birth name if they have another preferred name. NOT the fear of transgender people.
Cisgender person: Uh yeah so I don't have anything against tr@nnnies or anything but like you have a d!ck, so you're a boy, so I'm gonna call you he
Transgender person: Uhhh that's kind of transphobic
Cisgender person: Uh no?? I said I wasn't transphobic. I know what transphobia is, it's the fear of trans people, and I'm not afraid of trans people, so??? Wow. Really rude. Like no wonder no one likes tr@nnies. You're really cisphobic

A word created by trans people to protect themselves from any and all negativity.

Similar to how fat shaming creates a delusional world for the fat person, allowing them to believe people are just negative fat shamers, instead of taking responsibility for their problems.

Transphobia/ic as a term works in the same way when used by a trans-person.

It's an effective strategy in the ultra PC world to be able to shift all the negativity and difficulty of an issue off yourself, and onto the other person...Making them appear as though they're the one with the "weakness" as they can't possibly be talking sense, they must be transphobic instead.
John: Trans-people are more susceptible to depression and mental health problems, something that studies around the world have shown time & time again.

Maybe instead of switching gender for instance kudos and fake respect on social media, they should take the difficult route of actually seeking professional help, and try to understand how their mind works.

Trans-Person: wow you've just got Transphobia, there's nothing wrong with us at all, you're just insecure that we're better than you in every way.

The quality of being transphobic, to treat people differently because they're transgender.
On realizing that the hot girl he picked up at the bar was actually a guy, Arthur had an outbreak of transphobia.
